Treat Collection Lipstick

You know Valentine’s Day is coming up so it is time to think about which seductive red lipstick you are going to wear. Even if you aren’t dating someone, you can still dress up for yourself. I am no advocate of commercialized festive days but a red lipstick won’t hurt anyone, right?

This luxurious beauty looks so dark, I would have never bought it because I imagined the colour to turn out brown. But I am happy I won this lipstick and was able to identify this colour as the most seductive bright red liptint! It is called “good karma” by treat collection and is described as a bold dark cherry red.

Here I used only one light layer of lipstick.

The packaging looks and feels abolutely high-quality and makes you feel like a million dollar baby 😉 This fits to the overall impression I have of this lipstick, although the dyes are a big minus.

It is formulated without parabens, petrochemicals, phthalates, GMOs, triclosans and synthetic fragrances but while researching their ingredient list, I found out they still use some dyes that aren’t permitted in natural cosmetics or at least shouldn’t be used in there (e.g. lake 6 CI15850). So if you like their colours (there is a great range of them), you should do your own research about the substances in this lipstick and check if you are okay with using them.
